SANAA - A Gulf mediator tried to breathe new life into a deal to resolve a transition of power crisis in Yemen on Sunday, even as the opposition said it would reject any plan that would extend President Ali Abdullah Saleh's rule.

The head of the Gulf Cooperation Council held separate talks with Yemen's opposition and Saleh's party, which has clung to power despite three months of street protests and defections from politicians, army officers and tribal leaders.
